Heard about this trail, saw videos about it, had to do it...and I was not disappointed! These trails are amazing! Lots to ride for different levels of skill ranging from flat and curvy to nice drops. This is definitely a destination set of trails for me.

Customer Service

My favorite was The Ridgeline. The last two drops...Oh My God and Max Gs were the best. You definitely can't brake going down because you need the momentum to get up on the flip side.

Alafia River State Park is just a short drive from Balm Boyette...its worth checking out.

This trail is tons of fun. The trail is smooth and fast and flows very well. It is well maintained by Swamp and it has terrain for all levels. Not very technical but the fact that you can keep your speed around corners requires good control from the rider. The trails themselves are well marked but more signage is needed in the crossroads and intersections to guide you to the desired trail.

Customer Service

Just try to follow the map the best you can to guide you to the trails you want to ride.

The trails are very well maintained by the local orgainization Swamp. Trail signage makes navigation very easy. Ridgeline is a blast to ride and a definite must. Boyette has something to offer for everyone.

I recently returned to Balm-Boyette after 3 years and was pleasantly surprised. It is very fast and fun and there is enough there to challenge the most daring rider.

I live in Lakeland so Carter Rd is my home trail, and I love Alafia, but Balm Boyette is my current favorite (local) trail.

Customer Service

Advanced riders, head straight for Ridgeline, Pandemonium etc...

Awesome job by trail keepers. Rode SST and North and South trails. LOTS of sugar sand out to the trails, but well worth the ride.

I really enjoy the trails here a lot. As a guy who only gets to ride on the weekends, it would be great if you could park a little closer to the actual trails (2 miles closer would be great).

The trails really are some of the best around. I love the fact that you are not fighting quite as many roots as you do at Alafia, but these trails still add enough technical challenges to interest the more advanced rider. A lot of work goes into these trails and they are lots of fun. Wish I had a bit more energy it takes to ride the 16+ miles to hit most of the trails. Really an all day affair when you are out there.

I highly recommend checking out Boyette. You will get a great workout and experience some of the best trails in Florida.

I've ridden Boyette's trails many times in the last few years and I must say that this park recently has become my favorite and has come a long way. You've got to ride a little ways out to get to the fun stuff but it's well worth it. You wont see as many people on these trails in comparison to Alafia. It is great park on days Alafia is packed since it's so close. I've been to Santos, Alafia, and Carter many times, but none of them have a trail that compares to Ridgeline. Ridgeline is an absolute blast for the moderate to advanced rider. Not so technical but just fast, smooth riding. Pandemonium is another relatively new trail that is really nice. Any don't pass up north and south abyss either. All the other trails are a good warm up if you need it. If you live in Tampa-Orlando area and you haven't checked out Boyette you are definitely missing out.

Along with Alafia and Santos, this is Florida's best. Bring lots of water though, becuase one you get back to the trails, you won't want to run out. About a 2 mile trip both ways to get to the trails. Big calorie burn though!

This place has really had a face lift in the past months, great job by SWAMP to add all the new trails. The MAPS are now available on the swampclub.org website, you only have to join the forum, which is free. Their maps were only available to club members forever but they have now made them freely available.
